This book tells several stories of real progress against cancer. FINALLY! Having lost family members to this disease in the past, I've watched for decades as the so-called progress amounts to nothing more than finding poisons that are slightly less toxic to normal human cells than to the cancer cells. Which often does not cure, but only buys some pain filled time for the patient. But here the author lays out half a dozen or so histories of researchers finding that the root cause of some cancers are viruses or bacteria. Then vaccines can be developed. The rates of some cancers then fall throughout some entire nations for the targeted disease. A great and happy message!
